I've moved this item to the help and support section.

Here is how you would do what you want.

1) cut the bottom part of that image which has the actual image in it off and make it a new image by itself.

2) code the offbgcolor, onbgcolor of the menus the same color as that image background color. I think it is #b7554c.

3) in your main menu add an item at the bottom which is only the image you created and set it to type=header.

The result would be a menu colored that red with the last item that image with the keyboard stuff. When you click the other items it shifts the last item down.

Your main menu would look like this
with(new menuname("main menu")){
style = tstyle1;
alwaysvisible = 1;
aI("text=MENU ENTRY A;showmenu=a;type=tree");
aI("text=MENU ENTRY B;showmenu=b;type=tree;");
aI("text=MENU ENTRY C;showmenu=c;type=tree;");
aI("text=MENU ENTRY D;showmenu=d;type=tree;");

Hope that helps.
